Daisy Darker: A Novel

We rated this book:


Daisy Darker and her dysfunctional family rarely spend time together, but for Nana’s eightieth birthday, everyone makes the trek to her isolated seaside villa for what they don’t know will be their last ever family reunion. The festivities start out as heated as usual, with snide comments and tensions filling most of the evening, but all of a sudden, Nana is found dead. Soon after, more Darker family members are found murdered, with hints about who is next left in an ominous poem and Scrabble tiles. Daisy doesn’t have much time until she’s next.

From the author of Rock Paper Scissors is another fast-paced thriller full of unexpected twists and turns, this time reminiscent of And Then There Were None/em>. Unlike the famed Christie novel, none of the characters, including Daisy herself, are very likable — but surprisingly, this didn’t impact how much I enjoyed reading Daisy Darker. The plot itself was gripping enough that I couldn’t put the book down until I found out who the killer was, and it provided some twists that came highly unexpected even for an avid thriller reader. Alice Feeney has created yet another engrossing hit with Daisy Darker.
